TRX + Pilates


This class is taught by:

Theresa Schweingruber

Theresa's training through Drexel University, under the direction of Jennifer Morley, has
prepared her to teach students of all levels in mat classes and on the Pilates equipment.

As a dancer since the age of 4, she initially became interested in Pilates as a reliable cross-training practice to support her dance endeavors. Her genuine love for movement and the mind-body connection only enhanced her experiences with Pilates, both as a teacherand practitioner.

She hopes to share her practice and understanding with others who are also looking for support through cross-training.

Marielle Rubin

Originally from Boston, Mari is a recent Philly transplant. While she was originally fully trained on the mat through Balanced Body, she did an additional mat training and her full apparatus training through Drexel University.  Mari fell in love with Pilates a number of years ago, as the practice taught her to approach her physical and mental health in an intuitive way, and she loved how emotionally empowered and physically strong she felt after each class. She loves how precise and purposeful the practice is, and she wants her students to gain strength, stability and really challenge themselves throughout her classes. While constantly looking to help her clients challenge both their bodies and minds, Mari believes that hard work, discipline and confidence will help them accomplish their goals.

The Beginning:
My lifelong dream of sharing health and fitness came true with the opening of THRIVE in 2009. My passion for teaching and for health & fitness began as a young dancer and as a daughter of two school teachers who inspired their students every day. When I was fifteen years old, I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. Over the next two years, I was hospitalized, heavily medicated and operated on three times to save my life. After my recovery, I felt a renewed sense of purpose and began visiting children in hospitals and giving them hope and inspiration. It was then that I made helping others my life-long goal.

Education:
I graduated from my dream school, Cornell University, where I studied Human Development and met my husband, Nick.
After graduating, I followed Nick to Atlanta, GA where I worked as a Social Skills Teacher and psychotherapist while earning my Master’s degree in Counseling from Georgia State University.

Pilates Training:
I completed comprehensive Pilates Instructor Training with Power Pilates and constantly diversify my training with continuing education courses from a wide range of talented Pilates trainers. I currently teach private sessions and mat classes at Thrive.
My goal is to motivate and challenge my clients with an intense workout, while maintaining a gentle and compassionate approach. I’m all about being present with my client and facilitating the workout he/she needs in the moment.

Nutritional Experience/Training:
My nutritional training began with my personal experiences in healing through nutrition. Although my health improved after my surgeries, I began having symptoms of Crohn’s disease while I was a graduate student. My doctors put me on more medication and performed more surgeries, to no avail. Finally I met nutrition and healing coach, Catherine Carrigan of Total Fitness in Atlanta, GA., who taught me to heal my body through changes in diet and lifestyle. I studied with Catherine in her Nutritional Mastery Course and later graduated from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition becoming a Certified Health Coach.

Yoga Training:
I trained in Baptiste style Power Yoga, with my business partner and friend, Steve Gold of Philly Power Yoga. I have been practicing yoga since my days at Cornell and now enjoy taking and teaching yoga at Thrive and Philly Power Yoga. I teach private yoga sessions upon request.

Nicole Long


Nicole is a classically trained and fully certified Pilates Instructor who completed her training at Equinox in New York City. She has been teaching mat classes since 2015 and is thrilled to share her love for Pilates with her new community of Philadelphians!
Nicole found her love for Pilates after an injury put a halt to her running and typical gym workout. Pilates is low impact and can be modified for all injuries, weaknesses, and inflexibilities. She loved the notion of Pilates being for everybody’s, every body! Nicole teaches her classes with flow from start to finish and believes each class or session needs to be a full body workout!
